4K UHD production with novel video processing engine

Grass Valley launches the new GV K-Frame XP video production engine. Designed to make higher resolution content creation easier, the new compact switcher features "unmatched functionality across multiformat environments and high signal density, even with the increased bandwidth requirements of 4K UHD."

Featuring true single stream, full raster, 4K processing at 2160p, the K-Frame XP eliminates the need for compromise in 4K UHD productions; there’s no reduction in I/O count in 4K UHD, no reduction in M/Es, keyers or DPMS in 4K UHD, and no change in operator workflow in 4K UHD.

The K-Frame XP’s video processing is built on an innovative hardware platform. This compact solution has the smallest footprint of any professional 4K production switcher, delivering the processing power to handle any resolution (HD, 3G, and 4K UHD) – as well as HDR. The switcher also allows its 80x40 I/O count to remain unchanged, regardless of whether customers are producing in all IP, all SDI, or in hybrid environments at 1.5G, 3G, and 12G. The K-Frame XP supports all the latest IP and workflow standards such as SMPTE 2110 and AMWA/NMOS IS-04 and -05 standards.

Packed into a compact 8 RU footprint, the K-Frame XP supports 4K UHD on every input or output stream with no additional conversion required, and no reduction in I/O count. The system comes withup to six full-featured mix effects (MEs), each with six full keyers, with associated 2DDPMs, which include perspective. There is an additional option to add up to 16 floating 3D iDPMs. The new K-Frame XP is also fully compatible with any Grass Valley Kayenne, Karrera and GV Korona switcher control panel, allowing customers to leverage their existing investments.
The K-Frame XP also delivers:

  • Eight-channel ClipStore with two minutes of 4K UHD replay capacity
  • 12G single-stream connection on every input
  • Smooth, full raster 4K effects from every keyer
